NEW YORK — Plumbers, HVAC contractors and technicians now have a new educational video to refer to when working with copper tube and piping. The Copper Development Association (CDA) has added a new video to its how-to series, “Do It Proper with Copper,” designed to illustrate the proper techniques for installing copper tube and piping systems.

With the help of CDA project manager Harold Moret and his assistant Ron Gumucio, the association produced the high-definition video. To ensure that copper piping provides reliable, efficient performance, it’s important that the proper materials are being used for the appropriate job. For this purpose, the video, “Introduction to Copper Pipe, Tube and Fittings,” details the different copper tube, pipe and fittings that are available; explains the different designations and sizes they come in; and highlights what applications they’re best used for in the field.

“Before you can get started on any plumbing, heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, or any other plumbing-related project, it’s important to know the difference between copper tube and copper pipe, as well as the different types of fittings you should be using,” said Moret.

The video is available on the CDA website and on CDA’s YouTube channel.
